Clutch have announced a new livestream concert. Taking place on December 18th, “Live from the Doom Saloon Volume III” will feature a 15-song “greatest hits” set, essentially voted on by fans.
The band’s previous “Doom Saloon” called on fans to submit a full front-to-back setlist. Culling from 4,000 submissions, Clutch selected one winning setlist, which they then played in full. In the process, they gained valuable insight into what all of their fans consider the band’s signature songs.
“‘The Doom Saloon Volume 2’ set was written by a fan,” frontman Neil Fallon said in a press announcement. “We had over 4000 set list submissions. We were able to see what songs were the most requested and for ‘Doom Saloon Volume 3’ we will play the 15 most requested songs from ‘Doom Saloon Volume 2’’s setlist requests. It could be thought of as a greatest hits set as per the fans.”
In terms of virtual shows, Clutch have been one of the most active heavy bands during the pandemic. They were one of the first to open their rehearsal space for livestream viewing, playing songs for fans — a concept taken a step further with the “Doom Saloon” series.
Tickets cost $15 and show donations will benefit Save Our Stages, a charitable organization raising money for independent venues impacted by COVID-19.
In addition to the show ticket, you can also pre-order a double-LP vinyl pressing of the “Doom Saloon Volume III” concert, which will be recorded on December 18th and then mastered and pressed to vinyl. Both the LP and standard tickets are available via Clutch’s merch store.
